"fljover Cleveland's greatest mintnke," he said, "waii to run again, He would have been a great preiident but for that." Meanwhile close friends have found tbe president jo tired, so worried and so upset .over those In his administration who "have let him down," that they haven't had the heart to tell him how low his stock has dropped throughout the country. Those gathered with him at a family party in Independence, however, found the president relaxed for the first time In weks. I|e joked, gossiped and enjoyed himself--though tensing when somebody mentioned the press. Mrs. Truman, who was looking better than ever, dropped a necklace. It had become un- fHfilencd from around her neck. "When I don't put her 'together, she comei apart," remarked her huiband, stopping- to pick It up. "I envied you those t u r t l e steaks in Florida," suggested a friend. "You ran have all the turtles, sharks and inak* meat, 1 .' th'e president shot back. "Jmt give me an old-fashloncd Kansas City steak." When sOmeon* asked ··" -'"-' I ''-'·· ··-"· cle on his loud shirts and Florida..wardrobe, Truroan replied that the maga/lnr v.';j« trvn.« -,-j belittle him. "A few years, ngo they called me the best-dressed man In the United States," he said. "What do you think of the Kansas City Slar?" someone asked. "Don't answer t h a t one," Mrs. T r u m a n continued quickly, doubtless remembering what her husband had said on previous occasions regarding bis old friend, Hoy Roberts, the Star's publisher. · · .

Tom Dewpy is sending ex-New Deal Columnist .lay Franklin to Washington (o watch-dog the Eisonhower-for-prcsident headquarters. Dewcy is unhappy over certain statement.'! of Senators Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., and .Mm Duff, and thinks' Franklin should n i i M t y take over public relations. The. oncllme columnist wrote speeches and statements for President Truman in 1948, and was tossed out of the inner circle'because- of the jealousy of W h i t e House cronies. Officially, Franklin w i l l be on the staff of Sen. Irving Ives of New York, , * * .-* ; Thpugh it wns no time for milk-toast diplomacy, our chnrge d'affaires almost apologized to the Hungarians for the heat which 'the' American publlj was puttlng.on the Stlitc bcparlmcnt over the Incident of the four imprisoned fliers.

"Yet, 1 have patience, but. th'e American people and the press arc aroused over this case " replied A b b o t t . Then he pointed out t h a t Rik had once served In Washington and ought lo know the effect- of public opinion on U.S. policy. . "I should have no need to lecture you on the effect of an aroused American press and public on the policy-making machinery," Abbott explained. The public knows the; rest of the story--how the Communlrt government held tho four American airmen fo'r $120.000 blackmail. Since then, the Communists are whlsnering around Europe- that Ihe U n i t e d States can't even protect its own citlim.i, Irt alone Kuronean national)!.

At any rate, Truman has passed down the word to include a tax request in his message to Congress . . .

The Budget Bureau goes further, is trying to trim the military down to $45 billion. * * * iSuylng negligee for the wife is an awkward job for most men, doubly so when a member of Congress has his credit challenged. Congressman Walter Norbla;! of Oregon found he didn't have enough cash in his pocket a f t e r purchasing some nightwcar for his missus at Arlington, Va., shop, so wrote out a congressional check, payable from his salary account with the House sergeant-alarms. "I'm sorry, but you'll have to show us some Identification," said a girl cashier. Confidently the. Oregon congressman pro- ducod card bearing his iphoto and signature; plus the official seal of the United States. But the young lady remained skeptical. She noted that the customer was wearing »ri old Air Force jacket and had an advanced case of "five o'clock shadow"--unlike the clean-shaven features of his photograph. Giving Norhlad a fishy, eye, she called over another girl employe for consultation. Together they studied tbo card, and eyed the congressman. "F tell you, I'm a member of Congress," pleaded Norblsri. "That card i$ my identification." Finally, the second young lady pointed to the Oreconian's weather-beaten jacket. "I guess he's all right," she said. "He's in'the Army." Norblad picked up his package and left. £e*utett Herman Hickman, mastodonian head coach of the Yale football 'team, and greatest trencherman ever to down fourteen lamb chops at one sitting, now tips the scales at over 300 pounds, but when he was All-American at Tonnpsseo, scarcely exceeded 205. "If an opponent got loo rough," admits Hickman, "1 just kind of sat on him." * * * Yale students, and graduates love every pound of him- -even when his Eli team foes down in defeat. He says his policy is to lose just often enough so "the a l u m n i will be sullen but not mutinous. " When he isn't coaching gridiron warriors, Hickman is shining on a television program called "Celebrity Time." He knows poetry as thoroughly as John Kieran, nnd what's more, delivers it in a rich, drawling monotone that makes "even the damyankecs start cryin'." Herman once used his poetic prowess to inspire his Yale boys before a Princeton game. They listened enraptured, dashed out on the field -- and got trimmed something like 38 to 14. * * * Cousin of Atlantic editor Charlie Morlnn was flabbergasted to meet President Truman at « hoity-toity Washington dinner. Usually adept at repartee and the niceties of drawing room etiquette, the sudden collision with the president temporarily stunned her. All she could achieve was a stammered, "Oh-er -- Mr. Truman!

She had been home nearly ao hour. By this time the Demons might be on their way to Mexico Somehow they ought to be Hopped But how could they stop them, on what pretext? After all, only Alma knew that Mrs. Demon was not a cripple. Even to, this fact. In Kelt, was no grounds for arrest And as for Joe Demon. Alma's suspicions about him were basw wholly upon her discovery about his stepmother. Still something ought to be done about the Den- ons, and done quickly, "Tommy!" »he began. "What about Jot?" He waved her to silepce and spoke Into the telephone. "Hello, Mystl!" Alma broke off and watched in training silence, trying to sense what was being Said at the other end of the wire, attempting to read Tommys lace. Mysti Marchand was evidently being voluble and gay. scarcely giving Tommy the chance to ask his questions. Is Bright there? . . . When do you expect him? . .. Have you any Idea where he is? , . . Sure 1 wnnt to llnd him!" Finally lie hung up, slinking his hend. "No luck!" he said. "She claims she doesn't know how to reach ihim. Mnybe I'd bettor go look around the hare. Now what was that you were saying about Joe-?" "Vei," said * voice from behind them, "what about Joe?" · · · tf HE mud have left the front den ° open, Alma thought twifUy, and Jo« Dento'n bad walked In without knocking, How Ipng had be heon standing there and bow much had Ije heard? "Jo^l" she Mid falijtly. "1-we--thought you'd goriel You look .awful! What'i happened?" "Plenty!" He tank heavu IBM a chair and stared fit them for moment without saying anything further. "Snap out of it. old man, tell us!" Tommy broke the silence anxiously. Joe Denton passed hli fingers through nil hair ib a bewildered fashion. "I feel likt Tin going nuts!" be said slowly. "Something's happened that Ju« cant have happened--but it did. And I've come to you for help, because 1 don't know what to do. It's my stepmother, Mrs. Demon. She's disappeared--gone." A .queer, cold thrill ran through Alma's taut body. ;'Therel I told youl" «he cried triumphantly to T o m m y . Joe stared at hex oi*n-mouthed, while Tommy put a restraining hand on ler shoulder. Let Joe tell hli itory flrtt,' Tommy warned. "I'll have a try at It," Joe began with an effort at calmness ."We were practically all ut to leave for the train. My things were packed and I'd dom Mrs. Damon's earlier--all hut for throwing a few ast-minute thingi Into her suitcase. Then I remembered I hadn't paid the paper bill and went on down to the comer to take care of hut and get a few things from the drug store. I look my time coming lack nnd when I wa« about halfway doxvn the block 1 snw a car n front of the house. Mrs. Denton was being helped into It by two men." "Helped Into It!" Alma exclaimed. "Who were the men?" "One was a fellow I'd aaver Mien before." "And the other?" "The other was Brighton Mun:le!" Tbtrt waa a mpatot of :tunn*4 ttlenc*. Then Tommy ipokt. "Bright-an you sure 11 waa Bright?" Tom- my's voice waa Boarse with anxiety. "Positive. It was hit car and besides, 1 got a good look at him as he drove off." 'Didn't you stop them? Didn't you atk them anything?" Alma demanded wildly. "1 ran after 'em and yelled, but it didn't do'any good. She itw me and said something to Bright and he stepped on the gat. The light was with them and they were out of tight by Uw time I reached thf comer." "And then?" Alma aiked. · · · I WENT upitain to her apart- mem. I couldn't believe I'd seen straight. My good tenta told me 1 mutt b* mistaken. But the was gone,-all right. 'She'd left her 'heelchalr behind her and all her luggage except one bag. And anyone could aee she'd left in a hurry. What do you folks think it means?" "1 think you're already beginning to guess, Joe," said Alma. 'There is only one reason why she and Bright would have left together. And Mrs. Denton wasn't icing helped Into that car--she was getting in. She doesn't need any help! Dldnt you know that wheelchair wat a blind?" The look of anger on Joe Denon's face proclaimed hit innocence, even before he spoke. "Do you think I'd have waited on her like a slave all these yean f I'd known It?" he demanded uriously. "Well, thank goodnesc for thatl" Alma taid it fervently. They began to put the puxzlt tc- :ether t then, each contributing, a crap of odd-shaped information until tht picture began to lorn.

It is » realization of what life should be, joy to the world,-peace and good will. In our hearts there is a ffrcn' thankfulness to family and friends, an overwhelming appreciation of the great values of life, which are family and friends, love and good will. May we have them and en'- shrine them in our hearts and in our daily lives. As 1952 comes in let us aray and work for peace and ioy fnr the world. Individually, we would say :hank you, friends, each and every one for the ioy you bestowed, for the gifts and the : oyous time we had. We wish 'o'u all a happy new year. joyed tea, converiwtion and breakfasting: with friendu lunching and dinner, with Garrick, Goldsmith, Johnson and so on, is so vfvidly portrayed, as to be inexplainable.

Since we pur- :iased our TV set however, we are ontiriually disagreeing over what rograms each of us should see. I an't understand why my wife an't meet me halfway. I am very atient and considerate, but she 'ants her way. After watching her loire of programs for three or our hours, I'd like to see some porting events, but she gets so iad at the suggestion, she's ready 0 throw things. S. J. Answer: A f t e r watching TV for hree or four hours anyone will e.ready lo throw anything This and wonderful medium of ntertainment is causing similar 'sruptions in most homes. They in only be solved through the ve-and-take policy. Each mem- er of the family should be allot- 1 a certain amount of choice, ith everyone else abiding by it itiently. Jf your wife concedes your right a share in the program select- ig, she'll probably discover hpr- :U becoming very much intercst- d in sports. Some of the gentlest dies I know have become rabid resiling fans after being expos- d to thf sport for a while. Dear Miss Dix: Every nay you ear people remark how much our oldicrs in Korea would appreciate ur w r i t i n g to them. I am 15 and would like to do y part but I don't know whether would be proper. Do you think y parents and friends would ink it improper, or is it all right send mail to a strange service- ail? If it's okay, where could we get their addresses? AGATHA Answer: The question of whether young girls may, in propriety, send letters to unknown boys overseas is a matter of considerable dispute. Of course the f i n n l decision in a matter of this sort must be made by a girl's parents. The next point to consider is the girl's attitude when embarking on such i correspondence. If you rtgard it «s a quick road to romance, discard it. If you sin r cerely feel that you can write i friendly, interesting letter intended to cheer a lonely soldier (or other serviceman), your idea is commendable. boy away from home is a homesick- hoy; nothing means more to our young servicemen than cheerful letters, the more newsy the belter. Many boys don't have large families, or a large circle of friends jindjthey do look to stranger! to fill their need for mail. I can »ee nothing- intrinsically wrong in a girt--«ven one as young as you--undertaking this pleasant task. :" In slartinjt up a corrtspondent'e with a lad overseas' be^r in mind these particular' points. Don't dwell too much on 3-c-ur own personality. Of course the boy will want tp know about you. your family, friends and Jchool, but don't make yourself th* main topic Of the letter. Enliven it with humorous hits from the paper, jokes from your school magazine, enclose a clever cartoon, or a review of the movie you saw last night, with your own comments. The question of how to obtain the names of boys seeking correspondents is a . more difficult problem. Servicemen's clubs in your city would no doubt know of a lonesome guy looking for mail. 'f mom approves of your going ahead with the project, she can probably locate some addresses for you.
